What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

1. No purchase necessary
2. Timeframe: this is an ongoing group with no defined end time.

TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

Elaine, I try to set aside 2 mornings for housework and use those afternoons for errands and such. And in a perfect world that would work. However we do not live in a perfect world and all does not always go as planned LOL. Kinda good news today, my mother in law is finally stable enough to be moved to a long term care facility and as luck would have it we got her into one that is actually on the same street as I live. So whatever time the good Lord sees fit to give her will be spent close at hand to her family. So thank heaven for small mercies.
Sewfun26 enjoy your quilt show.

I like the idea of getting sewing first thing. I need to try that on a weekday sometime. I bet it would prioritize it for me as my activity for that day.

So that's what I'm doing wrong. I seem to hit the laundry, cleaning, shopping first then I'm too pooped to be creative. Think I'll have to assign special days to just sew, sun up to sun down.

I hear you Sandra, some weeks it is like the universe is conspiring to keep you away from what you would really rather be doing. I find also that it is also very easy to cocoon ourselves, I find that sometimes 4 days will go by and I haven't even poked my nose out of doors. With having to go back and forth to the hospital for my mother in law this forces me to get out and then I figure while I am out might as well get other stuff done.

I totally know what you mean Edith, unless I start in the morning and stay at it, well, forget it, I don't get to it at all! So ....... it's been a week since my last stitch. Help! It seems that everything else has to take precedence and I don't get to my quilting. And I don't like that. If only life would slow down a bunch.

Well I have a confession to make, I took a break from quilting and sewing (except to hem a pair of pants) and did some scrapbooking today and visited with my sister in law. Spent time up at the hospital with my mother in law and when I have to do that I find it hard to settle back in for sewing. I am better when I can start first thing in the morning and stay at it for a good period of time.

Mr. G is back up and running!

I spent the majority of today finishing the cutting of my fabrics for that quilt kit and then working on piecing the blocks. Being a perfectionist means that I work slowly. I realized this morning that with all of the handwork that I've been doing for the past 18 months that my machine piecing skills had gotten rusty. By the time I stopped for the day I was moving right along and hated to stop. I'm hoping to spend most of the day tomorrow working on it as well.

Good to see you well again Mr. G!

Congrats to those who have finished UFO's.

Hello to everyone. Well, I am back in the saddle as they say. I went to the gym today and had a full workout without losing any strength or having to go down in any weights on my exercises. I feel great. I put the just finished "no longer UFO" on the wall in the library here and it goes perfectly with the wall color. Wow. I didn't even think of that, I just made what was in my mind. It will be a few weeks before I get the pictures printed as I have 24 more pictures to take on the roll. Thanks for being there for me, and being there during my Flu Bug recovery period. Now, my best friend, Pauline, has a cold and sounds like Marlena Dietrich. Oh well, in a close community like I live in, one can expect this to happen. I have a UFO I want to finish so she can put it up in her bedroom. We change wall hangings back and forth. But, I think this one will be good for her. I am going to try to put it to backing and batting and do some quilting on it this evening. Tomorrow is for the Dr and the medicine check. Tonight is for fun. Yay. Mr. G.
